Biography* Joseph Richard Culpepper recorded his son's birth in the Family Bible: "Joseph W. E. Culpepper was born Feb the 11th 1863."
     Joseph W. Edward Culpepper's father enlisted in the Confederate Army in mid-1862 and was away fighting in the Civil War when Ed was born. It is not known if Ed was born in Randolph Co., AL where his parents were married or in Tallapoosa Co., AL where Ed was noted in the 1866 Alabama state census as a male under 10 years of age living with his parents. By 1870, Ed's parents had moved the family to Lee Co., AL where Ed was noted in 1870 and 1880 census records. Unfortunately, the 1890 census records were burned but at some point after the 1880 census, Ed's parents moved to Macon, Bibb Co., GA and this is where he apparently met and married Mary E. Holsey.
     Edward was noted with his wife, Mary E., and a daughter, Eva, whose month and year of birth were recorded as February 1891, in the 1900 census records of Macon, GA. At some point, Ed had apparently learned the carpentry trade since Mrs. F. D. Hale recorded entries from the Macon City Directory showing Ed working as a carpenter, a frame maker and a cabinet maker.
     By 1900, Edward had apparently purchased a home at 414 Clinton in Macon, GA and this is where he settled down with his family. Edward's mother had died in 1893 and his father was noted living with the family in the 1900 census. There is some question about whether Ed had a second wife since, according to Mrs. Hale's notes, his wife's name was listed variously as "Callie," "Nellie," and "Nettie" in the Macon City Directory from 1905 through 1935. The last record lists Edward as an employee of Builders Lumber Co. He would have been 72 years old.
